My Life Next Door, by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door, by Huntley Fitzpatrick, is a story about a girl who has looked out her window to see her neighbors, The Garrets, they are everything she always wanted in her family. They are crazy, fun, and affectionate towards one another. The Garrets aren't really respected in there community and are looked down upon because the many children in the house and the mess that is always left in there front yard. She cant help but look at them every night to see what fun thing they are doing now. One day she meets one of the boys in the family and she ends up being part of the family she always admired from afar. What will happen in the end? Will she take her families side or the garrets side?

This is one of the cutest books I have ever read. The main character is very relatable and you feel for her struggles and are happy when good things happen to her. If they came out with a sequal to this book I would read it. The Garrets were so hectic and loving that I wish I knew them. I wanted to be part of their family and hang out with them. All the family member are very likeable. You will get attached to each one when you read this book. I would recommend this book to someone who just wants a fun read that will make you laugh and love the relationship in this book. I highly recommend it.
